A child who does not share a close relationship with his parents is at a risk of suffering from depression. In addition, parents are their children’s first teacher, and provide them with knowledge that is necessary for survival through direct instruction. There is clear evidence that parents can and do influence children. Children are like sponges; they model everything a parent does and incorporate what they see into their own lives. It is important that parents set the right examples for their children.
Academic achievement is considered by scholars as one of the main goals for the school-age children (García Coll & Szalacha, 2004). According to modern theories, child development and his progress in school is related to some personal factors such as gender, socio-economic background of the family, the interaction of the child with the family environment, and family cooperation with the school (Bronfenbrenner, 1998, Cicchetti & Toth, 2000, Eitle 2005, Jacobs & Harvey, 2005). One of the most comprehensive theoretical framework for understanding the development of the child and their academic achievements is the theory of Epstein (1997, 2005, 2011) known differently as the model of overlapping spheres. This model is focused on the roles that
It is very necessary on the part of the teacher to perform effectively in order to bring out the desired outcomes of the learners and this requires effective and appropriate use of teaching skills in classroom. Teachers are asked not only to present information, but to help students grow in creativity, curiosity, social adjustment, problem solving, and responsibility; teachers are also asked to help students develop a good attitude toward classmates and their school. The accomplishment of these goals has a greater chance if teachers use effective teaching competencies. In the fast changing world of the early 21st century, secondary education is also changing; the role of teachers will also change. New social challenges and demands towards education and teachers, change schools into institutions with modern aims and social contracts.
Teaching is one of the most important professions in the world because the future of the world can be determined by the future life of young learners. This makes the relationship between the teachers and students a crucial issue. Some teachers or parents label the children as good or bad individuals. Dweck, Davidson, Nelson, and Enna (1978) maintain, “the performance of children is affected by the way teachers give them feedback about their performance” (as cited in Mwania & Muola, 2013, p. 2). The students’ cultural/socioeconomic status, previous academic achievements, evaluations received from the welfare agencies or psychological clinics are some elements that can cause a teacher to make a set of expectations leading to materialize those expectations/labels (Nygard, 2011).
Meeting the emotional needs of a child is very important and if the parents are focused on each other too much the child could be emotionally neglected. 10. If I were a parent I would most likely be a democratic parent. This parenting style is a medium which I think a child needs. Studies have shown that this along with authoritarian style parenting leads to high academic achievement which is important since kids spend a significant amount of their life in school and an important part of
Being a teacher is one of the most challenging jobs on the world. It requires patience, hard work, passion, dedication and willingness to sacrifice time so that the children will have guidance in learning not only to come to school but to develop holistically. Future teachers now and then are needed to be serious having the heart of service and eagerness to take education as a major career. A teacher is required to deliver the quality of education needed by the students that absorbs knowledge in achieving information in learning. As the time goes by, society dictates on the standard on what career of a certain student choose.
AN INVESTIGATIVE APPROACH ON THE PROSPECTIVE TEACHER’S PERSONALITY SHAPING Introduction In the changing globalised scenario of education teaching has become more challenging and complex. It is now not only a mere interaction between student and teacher but an organised, systematic process in which application of science, technology and consideration of behavioral science is of outmost importance. In this context a teacher should have an all round ability starting from academic superiority to behavioral adaptability. So, presence of some inherent and coherent quality like personality, acceptability, adaptability, values, accountability, professional ethics etc are essential for a teacher to reach the peak of excellence. In this paper we will
That is people achieve what they deserve according to their merit and hard work they do. Schools should be provided the attractive environments that help to students to socialize, they delivered not only as institutions that share certain knowledge and skills to students. Today, the focus of current debates among many educators and different institutional leaders alike has been that “socializing students” as the “aim” of education. At this point, I include three main arguments with regard to the aims of education for any given society. This debate can be understood as a battle among three points of view: 1) Education assistances to prepare students for employment opportunities that is an extension of market forces.
An educational leadership including both teachers and school administrators is a position which requires continuous development. Obviously, taking the rapidly changing world into consideration, the leader has to evaluate and improve oneself, in order to keep up with the times. There is a certain skill set that a teacher-leader has to acquire, in order to be successful. Talking about myself, my short-term goal is to set clear objectives, as it is the basic foundation of development in any leadership profession, including teaching. Also, it serves as an extremely valid assistance, in terms of defining where you are now and where you want to be.
INTRODUCTION In this seamlessly-wired and widely-connected era, school leadership is often presented with questions of uncertainty and anxiety on how to create a conducive environment where staff and students can naturally innovate, learn and grow. (Ng, David F. S., 2004). Leadership is a dynamic process that adopts a problem-finding and problem-solving approach to challenge the organisation towards higher levels of consciousness and growth (Ubben, Hughes, & Norris, 2011). There has been consistent acknowledgement in international researches on the important role played by the leadership of school principals and teachers in contributing to effective schools and enhanced student achievement.
